The Do Good Bus was created to bring people together to do charitable work and to help their community. After an 11,000 mile journey around the United States, this bus along with the help of 750 volunteers was able to help 25 different causes! Teamwork and altruism are the heart of this organization and we are proud to be able to bring this experience to our clients as a charitable team building program.
Make an Impact, Give Back Locally
We are proud of our company culture at Teambonding and we understand you’re proud of your culture as well. For each bus ride, we work closely with your team to incorporate your core values and company mission. We build in time to research your company and your employees to find activities that will be best for your group all while giving back.
“I have been working on new programs all year and sometimes one comes along that is so perfect we have to get involved. That is how I see the Do Good Bus. We have many charitable programs, but this is different, this brings us and our clients out into the world, outside the hotel ballroom to really get our hands dirty and do some good. The idea that it can pick up the client at their office, feed them, entertain them, do some good, build their team and bring them back 5 hours later- had to do this.”
During each Do Good Bus event, we have three goals:
AWARENESS – There are hundreds of causes that help our city, our neighbors, and our friends; our mission is to bring visibility and accessibility to these causes.
COMMUNITY – We aim to prove the power of working together with a shared purpose of making a difference.
SOCIAL IMPACT – We hope the Do Good Bus experience will inspire your staff to keep doing good – at work, at home, and in their community.
Each is tailored to serve one of these categories:
EARTH — Working with and/or for the environment. Working with your hands to build, paint, garden, city cleanups, etc.
PEOPLE — Working for a cause benefiting people in general. A soup kitchen, shelters, children, etc.
ANIMALS — Helping the four-legged types. Dogs, cats, rabbits, horses, etc.
An Experience of a Lifetime
Giving back is a natural part of team building while working together for a charitable cause. To make this even more exciting, we suggest keeping it a secret from your team about where you are headed, and what you will be doing. Working side-by-side, your team will forge lasting, authentic connections. Hopping on the Do Good Bus, not only connects your team to the community, but it creates awareness about the local charities around and connects them directly with a cause.
We work together with you to pick a cause that best suits your organization.
In Season 2, Episode 1 of the TeamBonding podcast, host Richard Rininsland and his guests — Deborah Brunet, Kevin Pertusiello, Samantha Goldstein, and Paul Giroux — discuss team building events from creation to sales and production to performance in a wide-ranging, animated conversation that provides an insider’s viewpoint. In particular, this group of expert team building event facilitators take a closer look at the “three-minute rule” and their individual tried and true ways to keep virtual audiences engaged.
Spring is Coming! How to Host a Safe Live Event in 2021
COVID-19 has dominated our lives for more than a year now, but, along with warmer weather and blooming flowers, the proverbial light at the end of the tunnel has appeared. Vaccinations are rolling out more quickly across the country, and people are — cautiously — starting to look at what the “new normal” will look like. One of those decisions is whether to stick with virtual events for a bit longer, or whether it’s finally safe to get together in person once more for live events.
There’s no denying that America — and frankly the entire world — is ready to get back to live events. After a year of quarantine, social distancing, virtual parties, and Zoom calls, there is a strong desire to connect with other people in person again. And with vaccinations picking up steam, that desire for live interaction is only getting stronger.
The words work and fun don’t always go hand in hand. Enjoying your work can become tricky when you feel as though you have been doing the same thing day in and day out for years. Especially with the recent remote culture, our work tasks seem to have become more mundane than ever. Since we spend so much of our time at work it is important to have fun and enjoy ourselves every once in a while. International Fun at Work Day on April 1st is the perfect day to break away from the monotony of everyday office tasks and enjoy your time with your colleagues.
Holidays are always a great excuse to get the team together and lift everyone’s spirits, especially while working remotely. St Patrick’s Day is no exception! The famous holiday, celebrated annually on March 17th, is typically a day of merriment, dancing, feasting, and drinking. This St. Patrick’s Day TeamBonding has got the perfect plan. Pull out your best green attire and get ready to party your shamrocks off. Here are the best activities and events to celebrate Saint Patrick’s Day virtually with your team.
It’s a common problem, especially in today’s world with so many demands coming at us from so many directions — you know what needs to get done, you know how it needs to get done, but for some reason, you’re struggling to “just do it” already.
When we feel connected to one another, we get more done: that is basic human behavior. But in this day and age, connecting with co-workers can be difficult to do in person, leaving the online route as the only path forward. But just because you can’t be together physically doesn’t mean your employees, peers, or fellow office dwellers can’t have that same sense of camaraderie and connection.
Daily routines and consistent habits provide structure and discipline to everyday life. Having a set wake-up time, lunch, and after-work routine can help reduce stress and anxiety and increase our overall health and wellness. However, the remote work phenomenon has caused many people to have to adapt to new work environments and routines. As a result, some people have developed unhealthy work from home habits. After months of remote work, staying healthy while working from home can seem like a difficult task. Learn how to maintain a work-life balance and develop healthy habits to keep remote work sustainable with these tips for staying healthy while working from home.
The first day of spring is March 20th, but depending on where you live it might be here sooner than you think! It’s never too early to start planning something to look forward to, especially in today’s time. Although last spring threw us through a whole whirlwind of changes and emotions, this year we have the opportunity to do it right and safely. Whether your team is remote, in-person, or anything in between there is a plethora of activities and ideas to take advantage of this spring to bring everyone together. Let’s list some ideas and key dates to keep an eye out for.
